Chesney and fellow star Tim McGraw held the first-ever concert at Target Field a year ago on July 8, which was attended by more than 42,000 fans.
Fans didn't waste any time getting tickets to Friday night's concert last December-- the show sold out in 30 minutes.
See a preview from Fox 9 on preparations for the Chesney and Basilica Block Party shows below.
See a report from KARE 11 below from last year's Chesney show.
Over at the Basilica Block Party outside the Basilica of St. Mary Friday night, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and Matt Nathanson will be the headliners, while Matchbox Twenty, Raphael Saadiq and the Goo Goo Dolls play the main stage Saturday.
Saadiq replaced Sharon Jones and the Dance Kings in the lineup, as Jones recovers from cancer surgery.
An estimated 25,000 people are expected to attend the Basilica Block Party, which has raised over $4 million since it began 19 years ago.
The three-stage Basillica event also features Father John Misty, Mayer Hawthorne, ZZ Ward, Family of the Year and Churchill on Friday night, as well as local acts Actual Wolf, the Cactus Blossoms and Southwire.
Saturday night will also feature Kate Earl, Walk the Moon and Cloud Cult, while On an On, Van Stee and Bomba de luz play the local stage.
Of course, traffic issues are expected with both events going on, so the Pioneer Press has a guide to getting around.
